Weekend By The Numbers

1,942 – Career points for Takia Starks, making the senior from Houston the Aggies’ all-time leading scorer. Starks surpassed former All-American Lisa Branch on a three-point play late in the second half of A&M’s win against Evansville on Sunday.

20 – Points for Tanisha Smith in her first NCAA Tournament game. Smith’s total against Evansville also marked her career high, eclipsing the 19 points she scored against Baylor on Jan. 21.

7 – Players on the baseball team with a team-high three home runs: Dylan Petrich, Kevin Gonzalez, Brodie Greene, Luke Anders, Adam Smith, Caleb Shofner and Nick Anders.

2 – Top-10 opponents defeated by the men’s tennis team. The Aggies knocked off No. 7 Illinois and No. 10 Southern California in back-to-back matches last week.

119 – Wins in the last five years for the men’s basketball team. The Aggies have won at least 20 games each season. Before the 2004-05 season, A&M had six 20-win seasons in its entire history.

9 – Deficit facing the women’s golf team entering the final round of the Thompson Invitational in Honolulu. However, solid rounds by Lauren Johnson, Sarah Zwartynski and Ashley Freeman helped boost the Aggies to a six shot victory.

101 – Career goals for soccer signee Chelsea Jones of Belton. Jones, just three goals away from setting Belton’s all-time record, has led her school to four consecutive district titles. She already owns Belton records in season scoring, season assists and career assists.
